House of Blues

15 Lansdowne St, Boston, MA
888.693.2583   |  website
  • Neighborhood: Kenmore-BU
In 2009, 36 Lansdowne finally shed its Tyvek wrapper to reveal the new House of Blues, a cavernous space with an improved layout, crisper acoustics, and boosted bass (not to mention more easily accessed bars and a full menu of Southern-esque grub). Since opening day, a nonstop barrage of top-notch talent and their correspondingly epic set pieces have graced the HoB's Delta-mud-scrubbed stage — among them, Lady GaGa, the Dropkicks, and Katy Perry. If your live-music wish list includes jaw-dropping pyrotechnics, the House of Blues is your joint. And, in a nod to the late, lamented original House of Blues in Cambridge, the new joint includes a restaurant with small-stage acts and a traditional gospel brunch on weekends. Tickets from the Web site, Orpheum Box Office at One Hamilton Place, or through Ticketmaster.
